    • I am not a lawyer but I definitely think you are correct.   You will need evidence that Fast Track was not available on your way out - "Unknown reasons" sounds ominous. Do you have pictures/videos/written records to prove it?   Ryanair website states they are not responsible for you missing your flight as a result of fast track, but it doesn't say anything about not being responsible for the product they sold you not being available. Have you tried asking for a refund already?   Either way they sold you something that they did not provide - I don't see how this can be legal - and hopefully you should be able to prove it. Get written evidence that they refused to refund you (if you don't have it already) and take it straight to your card provider. (by many accounts it seems pointless to try and negotiate with Ryanair)
    • Hello everyone, recently I ordered 4 birds, 2 canaries and 2 lovebirds from a pet shop in Nottingham. When I received the birds, one of the canaries looked scruffy and had a bald spot on its back. when I asked the owner if this was normal he stated that “it is a baby and will be normal in a week” so I waited a week and I discovered it was sneezing throughout the night. I then decided to check their weight and the scruffy one was only 15 grams while the other was 26 grams. While weighing them I discovered they were covered in blood mites (small bugs that feed on blood) so I contacted him and he said I could return them but I’m unable to drive an hour to his shop so I offered to pay another delivery fee fr him to pick it up but he was ignoring me so I decided to try to treat them and bought many medicines and I cured their mute problem but now all 4 birds are sneezing, I’ve had many birds before and I’ve never had these problems so I asked him if he couldn’t please come pick them up but he kept reading my messages and ignoring me then when I called him he blocked my number so I messaged him on my other number laws showing te sale of an ill animal is prohibited and sent him proof of his false advertising (saying they were “excellent healthy birds”) proof fm their illness and he blocks me again. I feel scammed and according to the law he I is obligated to refund me for the birds and any medical expenses but I don’t know know where to report him or what to do about it. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • If its a domestic address and a normal account, thought they could only bill who is on the Tenancy agreement or Mortgage, as isn't a Tenancy in Common. if Joint tenancy and other party gone, didn't think children who have gained majority can be held liable, as not on any paperwork, apart from Electoral roll.  Is a Lodger liable?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi,

 

when i bought my insurance premium i stated my conviction ( using mobile phone while driving ) as 2 years old offence , but apparently the actual date offence commited was 2 years and 2 month ago! which makes my offence an older offence .. this is clearly an innocent mistake due to me not knowing the exact date and guessing it ...

 

insurance company is now asking for extra 45quid due to this mistake it doesnt even make sense ... is thats fair ?

thank you

This will include an admin charge for the Insurers to amend the policy information. This is pretty standard for Insurers to charge these days. Some will waive this, if you complain to a supervisor. This is required as the frontline staff on the phone, will need their supervisor to apply an overide.

 

The £45 will mostly be the admin charge. I can't see this affecting the rates being charged. Sometimes when you make an adjustment to a policy, it does perform a recalculation, that might cause an additional premium to be created.

 

Give it a go. If they insist on making the charge, then just pay it as it is not worth the hassle. They are allowed to make these charges, so you don't have any case to further your complaint elsewhere.


We could do with some help from you.

Just to hassle them ask them for a full breakdown as to how they have arrived at this magic finure of £45 although more than likely you will have to pay it anyway. We got caught the same way with Post Offcie insurance and wil never use them or recommend them.

I'm thinking of moving to another company because I also like to have fully comprehensive cover and doubt it that this company is going to be the cheapest oneanyway (see this thread for why http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?274061-Crashed-and-ran-away! ) ... but I have been told by the current insurance company that if I withdraw and go for other company I will have to notify my new insurer that I have withdrawn insurance in the past which can increase my premium, is thats true ? I thought I only have to tell them if the insurance company cancels my current policy...

You do not have to notify a new insurance company if you choose to cancel your contract. Personally I'd report that company to the FSA for giving false advice just on what they said. It seems like a very cheap trick to get you to stay, and is certainly not TCF compliant.

 

 

Have you asked them for a breakdown on why you are being charged an extra £45?

check the dates as you should only notify of the CONVICTION date and not the OFFENCE date.
